This study presents concordance data from 3 different tests of small nerve-fibre function on the same diabetic patients and also examines the effects of hyperglycaemia. Thus the TTT-Glasgow automated thermal threshold test, EAR-Electrically evoked axon reflex flare, and GOE-Gastric emptying of a mixed sold/liquid meal and oesophageal emptying of a solid bolus were all measured on 25 diabetic patients. The TTT, EAR and GOE all gave values ranging from within the normal reference range for non… CONTINUE READING
